We also experienced rude staff on our visit to the "Castle". We didn't feel very welcome when we entered the house with our children. I got the distinct impression they would rather children not come to visit. I also thought it odd to be asked to buy a book authored by the person taking your admittance money. Shouldn't the book be on the top floor, which is essentially all souvenirs?
The house itself, while not truly a castle, is rather large. It has an interesting exterior, bu t we found the interior to be rather plain. While that can be very elegant in it's own way, It appeared the house had been "dressed up" in various styles. Again, it is personal preference, but I would rather see the plain architecture of the house and let it speak for itself. Much of the house was crowded with furniture, roped off, etc... so that we really didn't feel we got a good feel for the interior.
Also, the house is in a very residential setting, with very limited public parking. Trying to exit can be confusing as many of the narrow, winding streets are marked for local resident use only.
In all, we wished we had skipped this one.
